The answer is: C. propanal.
1-propanol is a primary alcohol. With a weak oxidizing agent primary alcohol gives aldehydes and with a strong oxidizing agent primary alcohol gives carbonic acid.
Oxidation of 1-propanol to Na₂Cr₂O₇ and propanal sulfuric acid and oxidation to chromic acid gives propionic acid.
